The Sinclair Broadcast Diversity Scholarship Fund was established in 2016 to provide financial support to college students interested in a career in broadcast / digital journalism, or marketing. The Fund plans to award scholarships of up to $5,000 to qualifying and deserving students from underrepresented minority groups who need financial assistance to complete their education.
The Fund complements Sinclair’s existing widespread internship program as well as Sinclair’s long-standing relationships with numerous colleges, including historically black colleges and universities in markets where Sinclair has stations. This Fund is another way for Sinclair to invest in the future of broadcast television, by ensuring that students dedicated to careers in broadcasting can complete their educations.
Sinclair Broadcast Group is launching its 2023 Diversity Scholarship competition. The scholarship program aims to invest in the future of the broadcast industry and help students from diverse backgrounds, who reflect Sinclair’s audiences nationwide, complete their education and pursue careers in broadcast journalism, digital storytelling, and marketing.
This is a one-time scholarship for up to $5,000.
The deadline to apply is April 30.
